As part of the Chief Minister’s drive to promote the Tamil language in South India and also create the awareness that Tamil now comes under the Classical Language Category alongside with Sanskrit, Nasscom along with its members conducted the first phase of the ‘Tamil Semmozhi Manadu’ in all the 30 districts of Tamil Nadu. Ascenders Technologies participated as an IT facilitator for the events conducted (on February 12, 2010) in Chennai, Tanjore, Namakkal, Mayavaram and Dindugal districts.
Our personnel were deputed as judges for electronic painting competitions held for school children ranging from primary school levels up to Higher Secondary School levels. The paintings were meant to graphically and symbolically represent the teachings of the Thirukkural and other ancient classical Tamil literature. The selected candidates in the event would be invited to the final competition to be held on June 23rd 2010 at Coimbatore where our Chief Minister will himself distribute the prizes to the winners.
